Overview

Chicago gets the Avant-Guide treatment in this eye-opening expose of the city's hip and hidden attractions. With razor-sharp editorial focus, this book breaks fresh ground by way of new discoveries and authoritative reports on stylish hotels, the latest restaurants, unique shops, and the best nightspots. Among the suggested lodging and itinerary opitons are hip boutique hotels like the Hotel 7 on Wacker Drive, Lula Cafe, a hot new style-spot with a deliciously eclectic menu nestled in beautiful Logan Square, and a ride on an "architectour" boat down the Chicago River. Later, you can check out the jet-set new boutiques along the Miracle Mile, followed by a visit to Foodlife, a bustling new restaurant bursting with singles, couples, and young urban families. After sunset, head over to Tomboy, a lofty lounge on Randolph Street that serves over 100 wines by the glass. Then arrive at the kitschy Club Foot just before midnight and take a whirl on the floor of this tremendously fun nod to new wave and glam rock. And that's just day one.

    The perfect guidebook

    I travel a lot and am skeptical of overly trendy things. After purchasing Avant-Guide Chicago for my trip I found that it is simply dead-on. The straight-to-the-point writing made it simply the best travel book I've ever used. It satisfied my needs in a way no other travel book has ever done. Later, while on business to San Francisco I picked up a copy of Avant-Guide San Francisco. The book had information I didn¿t find in any other guidebook, nor had I found in my 5 years of travelling there. Again pleasantly surprised, I must say that these books made my trips. For example when it was late and I had trouble finding a restaurant, Avant-Guide's section on late night dining saved me. Avant-Guide Chiago is precise, visually perfect, with a balanced set of useful information.
